The Exceptions Barter Exchange was created for the small business owners here in Ohio to make their bartering experience affordable and profitable for growth and to encourage #ShopLocal. While we promote ShopLocal; we are connected to thousands of other business owners in different barter exchanges across the US, Canada, and several other countries. I would like for you to take a look at our website www.ExceptionsBarterExchange.com and consider listing with us. We offer a solution for businesses to sell their un-booked time slots and excess inventory or products at full retail price through trade.
Conservation of Cash: Take products or services you normally pay cash for – such as pest control, carpet cleaning, employee gifts or incentives, etc. – and use barter credits instead.
Converting Dead Inventory into Profit: Move slow-selling merchandise through Exceptions Barter and convert it into barter credits you can use on products or services you need. Now, merchandise you might have sold for cash at a significantly reduced price can be sold for full retail on trade.
Increased Buying Power: Buy merchandise or services on trade and sell for cash. This also allows you to offer more services to your existing clients.
Higher Standard of Living: Enjoy a higher standard of living! Things you may not spend cash on are readily available on trade. Eat out more, go to sporting events, buy jewelry, rent a limousine, etc.

How Does it work?
If a newspaper barters $1,000 worth of advertising to a house painter through EB that newspaper can now buy $1,000 worth of product or services from any participating member of EB, or they may even choose to accumulate more barter credits to make a larger purchase in a future transaction. And as a member of EXCEPTIONS BARTER, you have the ability to purchase or sell goods or services with members of barter groups throughout the entire network.
Request FAQ Sheet
Joe the plumber has 2 or 3 appointments this week open. Meaning if he doesn’t fill them; he is losing business because time waits for no one.
So Joe puts those appointments on the Exceptions Barter Exchange. By chance Client Big Law Firm, calls me and says, we need to have our pipes checked before it gets cold. So, I tell Big Law Firm to go and click Purchase under Joe’s plumbing services. Big Law Firm does so and immediately Joe Plumber has just earned $X amount of dollars deposited in his account.
Joe doesn’t have to spend his newly earned Exceptions Barter Dollars with Big Law Firm. Joe may even want to go on vacation or purchase his cleaning supplies from another member. There is a ton of choices Joe can make or he can chose to keep those dollars adding up until he decides on something to spend them on now or in the future. Once earned they stay in his Exceptions Bank.
ADDED Bonus: Big Law Firm’s administrator is talking to law firm client A. Client A happens to mention they need a plumber and ask for a referral if you got one. Client A is not a member of Exceptions Barter Exchange so BLF Administrator tells client A; call Joe yourself he did a great job for us. Hence Joe gets a new Cash paying client to boot.
The story could go on and on trickling down to all of the connections made from one transaction done through the Exceptions Barter Exchange.
